grace moments

the last 10 days or so have been days of astounding grace
visible, touchable grace

who may ascend the hill of the Lord
who may stand in His holy place
he who has clean hands and a pure heart ....

it has been a deep humbling tender privilege to serve one who has chosen to pause
and step aside in his ascent
to allow for a fresh washing of his hands and deep purifying of his heart

that there might be a strengthening of weak hands
and feeble knees
so that this limb
which is lame
may not be put out of joint
but healed

for the body is only as strong as its weakest part
